Cosmetic Dermatology

Neuromodulators:

Botulinum Toxin (Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin) treatment is a revolutionary approach to reversing the affects facial wrinkles. Crow’s feet, worry lines and laugh lines can all be a thing of the past. These are referred to as dynamic wrinkle lines and all are treatable with this procedure. Cosmetic denervation is the process of injecting botox into the tiny facial muscles that create the wrinkles.

Before the procedure

To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history prior to the procedure. In addition, a complete examination of your eyes is made in order to decide the most effective injection sites. All issues and concerns will be discussed.

The areas that will be treated are marked and digital photographs are taken in order to determine the amount of improvement after surgery.

The Procedure

The injections are performed without anesthesia because it is virtually painless. Only a very small sting is felt when the injections are made. The effects are not permanent and may need to be repeated two to three times per year to retain the effects. Research has suggested, however, that long term use of the injections leads to a longer duration of each treatment’s effect. Patients over the age of 65 may not experience as dramatic of results. Botulinum Toxin is only useful in treating expression lines and cannot be used to repair sagging skin caused by aging.

Post-Injection Information

After the injections patients may experience slight bruising around the area that quickly fades. Normal activities can be performed immediately. Possible side effects are temporary weakness of nearby muscles or in rare cases an eyelid may droop. Botulinum Toxin is completely reversible so any side effect is only a temporary condition. The doctor will explain all risks associated at the time of your consultation.

 

Dermal fillers:

If you’d like to restore youthful fullness to your face, enjoy plump lips, enhance shallow contours or soften those facial creases and wrinkles, dermal fillers may be the answer. Dermal fillers have been called “liquid facelifts” because they offer many of the benefits of a surgical facelift without the downtime.

Although they can’t help with excess sagging skin, these soft tissue fillers can add more volume and provide immediate results at a lower cost than surgery. These treatments aren’t permanent, however, and they must be repeated and maintained.

Some dermal fillers are used in conjunction with other skin rejuvenation treatments such as injections of botulinum toxin. We will assess your needs and recommend one or a combination of treatments to achieve your desired results.

Chemical peel is helpful for wrinkles, light acne scarring and irregular pigmentation such as freckles and age spots. Pre-cancerous conditions such as keratoses (thick, rough, reddish growths) also respond well to this procedure.

 

Chemical peels:

Do you wish that you could simply peel signs of aging from your skin? We use chemical peels to do just this. A chemical peel can diminish many signs of aging on the face as well as the hands, neck, and chest.

Chemical peels also treat some skin conditions. We use chemical peels to treat some types of acne and conditions that discolor the skin.

Whether you receive a chemical peel to diminish signs of aging or treat a skin condition, you can see:

  • Fewer lines and wrinkles.
  • More even skin color.
  • Brighter complexion.
  • Smoother skin. 

Some chemical peels require downtime.             

Uses: We use chemical peels to treat:

  • Acne (some types).
  • Age spots.
  • Discoloration (blotchy complexion, uneven skin tone).
  • Dull complexion.
  • Fine lines (especially under the eyes and around the mouth).
  • Freckles.
  • Melasma.
  • Rough-feeling skin.
  • Sun-damage skin.

Insurance coverage: Chemical peels are considered a cosmetic treatment. Insurance does not cover the cost of cosmetic treatments.

 

Skin Rejuvenation:

A skin rejuvenation program is often used in conjunction with either chemical peels or laser wrinkle removal to reduce the fine wrinkles of the face, lighten areas of hyperpigmentation and produce a softer texture to the skin. The program can be accomplished separately or in conjunction with the other procedures listed here and is followed at home by the patient after a consultation and a treatment plan is established for the patient’s cosmetic needs. Our skin care department is dedicated to providing you with the latest and most effective skin treatments available.

We invite you to inquire about laser skin resurfacing and hope it can help you achieve smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin.
